Our widest, simplest shoe pays homage to the original humans of the Rift Valley. Ababa is handmade in Ethiopia in collaboration with Soul of Africa, an organization focused on creating opportunities for employment and education across the African continent.
We're confident that after experiencing the joys of natural foot freedom, your feet won't want to go back to 'normal' shoes.
So confident, we've introduced a 100 day trial to all orders. If you change your mind within that period, we're happy for you to return your shoes for a full refund with no hassle.
Your trial will commence automatically from the date your order arrives. Simply check out with your shoes as usual and we'll take care of the rest. (Standard Ts and Cs apply).

Made in Africa in collaboration with the Soul of Africa social enterprise. Profits go back to supporting local employment and education initiatives.
This is my second pair of Ababa Black Leather Shoes. The original shoes were bought in Covent Garden and I wear them for the gym and casual. The second pair I keep for day wear, I'm considering buying the canvas shoes and will go to London to try them first. So far Ive not been able to get my size in trainers or the boots - but I'm patient.
I convinced my mother that the Vivobrand would be the start to having more comfortable feet. We originally bought these shoes in Women Size 7 but after discussing it with the Chat Team I purchased them in Men Size 6.I cannot say that my mother has become a spring chicken but she is loving these shoes.
